Antoni Kazimierski: I am trying to find the record of my grandfather Kazimierz Morawski son of Wilhelm (b. 1897 in Sosnowiec) in the KARTA and RUS lists.Message 1 of 1 , May 5, 2007View Source
I am trying to find the record of my grandfather Kazimierz Morawski son of Wilhelm (b. 1897 in Sosnowiec) in the KARTA and RUS lists. Granddad was deported from Korzec in Wolyn to Poldniewica, Szarynski Rayon, Gorkowskoja Oblast. The other members of the family were my grandmother Zofia daughter of Marian Leonard Hantz (b. in 1898), and their children, Jerzy (b. 1920), Wojciech (b. 1923, Skarzysko Kamienna) and my mother Barbara (b. 1926). I would like to find out the number of the posiolek and anything else I can learn.
I speak and read Polish with some fluency and read the Cyrillic alphabet a little. I have searched both the RUS and KARTA lists many times and not found anything on them or anyone else’s name I have searched. The funny thing is that about seven or eight years ago, when I first discovered KARTA, I searched their photo collection of the time, and found one picture of Poldniewica, a group picture of the youth with my uncle Wojciech Morawski in it. Luckily I saved that picture because later when I tried to find it again in KARTA I could not, nor any other mention of Poldniewica. Do you know if these lists only deal with those deported to the larger Gulags?
I realize that the lists are incomplete and that they are being added constantly, but I just want to see if I am not searching them completely.
Thanks for your help
